Adultery is usually not about the “Lust of the Flesh”

Watched “Casanova” on HBO last night.  Hilarious movie, I enjoyed it very much.

But it brought up a question.  Why do horn-dogs want to have sex with so many women?   For exactly the same reason a dog licks its balls?  Because it can.

No, I don’t mean that men have a lot of sex because they can.  I mean that they seduce many women because they can.  It is not that they need the sex, it is the fact that they can get so many women in bed with them.  The fact of the seduction proves their power.  It is not about lust, it is about pride.

Witness what Not-yet-President Trump said to Billy Bush.

I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. I just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.

So, according to our president, the reason that he has committed so much adultery is not that his wife is not sexy enough (for sure, Melania Trump is one of the hottest women on the planet) but, rather, that his conquests of women show how famous he is.  It feeds his narcissism.

But porn and erotica is not about pride.  There is nothing about porn that feeds your ego.  It only makes you feel good physically.  Since it is not about the lust of the flesh (Do I really need to explain Cartesian Body-Soul dualism again?) it is simply the acting out of a physical desire, like eating or sleeping.
